Sole E95 Elliptical

Sole Elliptical trainers are quickly becoming the trainer of choice for anyone looking for a gym grade Elliptical in the home.  They have built on their success in high end hotel chains and gyms to leverage their home sales.  With their good looks and reliability they do make a great choice.

The advantages of the Sole Ellipticals:

  • Bomb proof construction.  You will be wearing out before your elliptical, they have built their business on high quality – affordable machines that just work.
  • Comfortable Ride:  Along with the reliability comes the quality build.  You will find these really smooth to ride, no rubbing, bangs or other unexpected noises.  The motion of the elliptical is very smooth and rounded giving a very natural gait when moving fast.
  • Affordability: given that these ellipticals can go to nearly $2000 it seems strange to consider them affordable.  However they are going to give years of quality service.  You can spend half the amount and have an elliptical that works for less than half the time of the Sole.  For a true commercial elliptical you could expect to pay >$4000

 

Any issues with the Sole Ellipticals:

Build Time – Their ellipticals for home do not come pre-assembled.  With their high build quality it can take time to assemble them and you may need a few pairs of hands to maneuver the boxes.  All the tools for assembly are included, however we would recommend keeping a quality socket set to hand to make life easier.
